Even Small Nonprofits Carry Big Risks
Nonprofit organizations are some of the most intricate and complicated businesses to properly insure due to their varied and unique operations. In addition to standard coverages found in a package policy, we include some of the most important and often overlooked areas of insurance coverage for nonprofit organizations.
Think about nonprofit thrift shops raising funds to support schools or social service organizations. A paid manager position requires workers' compensation and possible employee benefits while volunteer groups are exposed to injuries on a daily basis as they lift, carry, and shelve items for sale. Shoppers also face risks, including products that may cause harm or loss.

Important Specialty Coverage Explanations
Abuse and Molestation: Protects insured from claims of client abuse or molestation by employees or a third party such as a volunteer.
Volunteer accident coverage: Most workers’ compensation policies do not cover any injuries sustained by volunteers. Many nonprofits want to provide at least a minimal amount of coverage for injury or illnesses that volunteers may incur while volunteering for their organization.
Professional Liability: Many nonprofits, such as religious organizations, crisis centers, or schools, engage in counseling and providing advice to the general public. These types of professional services are typically not covered under a general liability and property package policy. Therefore, a nonprofit may need professional services liability coverage to protect the organization from lawsuits.
Directors and Officers protection: Serving on the board of a nonprofit can be financially risky for each and every board member. The corporate status of a nonprofit typically does NOT protect board members from liability from lawsuits brought by the general public. A separate nonprofit Directors and Officers policy is needed to protect one’s personal assets while serving on the board.
Special Events With Liquor Liability coverage: Most nonprofits survive financially by conducting a variety of fundraisers. Many charity activities such as silent auctions, sporting events, banquets, or holiday celebrations, are NOT covered under a typical package policy. Nonprofits need to make sure their insurance policy has coverage for each type of special event, and if needed, the coverage should include liquor liability whether the nonprofit is serving the alcohol or uses a bartender.
Business Income Protection: Since most nonprofits rely on donations for income, getting business income coverage right is crucial. Attention should be given to the potential loss of donations from damage to reputation, decrease of government funds, or donors not fulfilling pledges.
Cyber Liability and data theft coverage: Cyber liability and data theft coverage should be a huge concern for nonprofits. When a nonprofit collects funds via credit cards, it carries a risk of potentially large cyber liability claims. For example, if a nonprofit has a place on its website to collect credit card information for donations, the nonprofit becomes liable for any type of breach of credit card information whether it is hosted in “the cloud” or processed by the credit card company.
Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI): This will protect the organization from claims such as wrongful termination, failure to hire, discrimination of race, sex or gender, and sexual harassment. Due to the large number of volunteers that many nonprofits use, this becomes another critical coverage.
